C# BugzScout wrapper.

I wrote a C# BugzScout wrapper today.  It's pretty much a drop in, although it could use with some more capable error handling.

I'm putting a link to it here for a fairly simple reason:  I'd love it if someone would look at my code and my coding style and simply give me some input as to how it looks, etc.  The problem I have is that I've never been peer reviewed - I've always worked solo, and I'm completely self taught - not a single day of schooling.  We have some new folks starting here soon and I'm really starting to worry that my code is substandard/poor/really crappy. :)

Since the folks here seem to be fairly nice and since I'm extremely comfortable with C# (as compared to Perl, or VB6) I thought the posting of this wrapper might have two benefits:  first, it might help someone who's looking to integrate FogBUGZ into a .NET Application.  Second, it might provide much needed criticism of how I write code.

Anyway, please help yourselfs.  It can be found at http://www.netcotitle.com/dev/CBugzScout.htm - I know it's not a huge program, or complex at all, but it's the first time I've posted code publicly. :)  The primary reason I never contribute to Open Source is a feeling of inferiority.  Heh heh. :)

I updated the code (I saw about 5 downloads!  Whee!).  There's a new version posted at the above link that includes better error handling (including server not found; it also parses the results passed back by FogBUGZ to see if the bug actually went through or not and sets an enumerated variable to the appropriate error code) along with some other, minor changes.

I think it's fully functional now.

This code has been moved.  Sorry for not linking from the original link to the new one.

It's new home is http://www.schkerke.com/Articles/BugzScout-cs.html

Thanks.

Good code, saved me some time.  Here's an updated link:
